    Right AH, the missus has fecked off, and the isolation of quarantine is getting to me; I'm repulsed by alcohol and I can't seem to feel any emotions. Give me a solid tear jerker movie so that I can feel something.

    Something along the lines of Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator or what not. I'm not good at movies so there might be some obvious titles that will fit the bill.

    Not necessarily sad. Figured emotional response was the aim.

    Braveheart (end scene always gets me going)
    Michael Collins (similar feeling)
    road to perdition
    Fury
    We were soldiers

    The Godfather (Part 2)

    Band of brothers (has a variety of scenes/episodes which can be emotional as you become more attached to characters)

    Stand by me.
    Breakfast club

    The Theory of everything.

    Unforgiven
    The good, the bad, and the ugly. (music is incredible)
    Open range
    Once upon a time in the West.

    Wall-E :D

    The Mist?

    The ending is upsetting.

    End of avengers Endgame hit me like a ton of bricks. I think it's a parental thing though. But a lot of sniffing and throat clearing in the cinema when watching that.

    Ending scene of Gladiator was designed to make grown men cry:

    "Go to them...."

    The Impossible (about the the 2004 Tsunami...didn't help that one of my kids has the same name as one of the kids in the movie)

    Watched that before, didn't do it for me. Maybe I'm a bit cynical but it was too over the top for me to buy into it.

    I cried when Godzilla died in the disastrous 1998 movie. In my defence, I was only 8.

    The Iron Giant. Animated

    But if you don't at least sniff then you are dead inside :)

    Not a movie, but just give in to the craziness of The Leftovers.
    The acting, and soundtrack will have you an absolute mess.

    Arrival is also a gut-punch of a movie.
